I ate a banquet dinner at rhe end of a conference in June 2018. We were served copious amounts of local wine, each delicious and distinct — a rosé, a white, and then a red. The dinner was held in a barn-like structure, high and airy and comfortably climate controlled. The first course was a watermelon and beet salad — superb! The main was braied beef and grilled salmon on cheesy grits with tiny onions and a demiglace gravy — amazing! And the dessert was a square, oaty and buttery, rich and delicate and just sweet enough. So, the food was unimpeachably delicious. The service was quick and efficient and polite, even when one table member made and unusual request, and the wine flowed. The sun set, the rolling lovelines of the views softened, and fireflies came out. A gorgeous place, a treat to have been there.

Just a short drive from Charlottesville, this is the winery I choose for my out-of-town friends when they come to visit. The views are stunning. The wines are quite good and the small plates are delicious. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Stopped in for an excellent lunch on the patio overlooking the vineyard. Our small plates were very tasty, the scallops especially. Pretty upscale. Definitely a primo stop while in the area.

Very good for a light lunch or snack and wine. Beautiful outdoor seating and first-class facilities, with good service and fresh delicious small plate offerings; great for sharing. Dogs are welcome at the outside seating, although the outdoor tables are not dining height bit rather coffee tables with “couch” height seating.

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch in the most gorgeous setting. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and boasts views of the blue ridge mountains, vineyards and lush forests.

The staff were helpful and efficient. Food & wine were delicious. I recommend this for adults however we visited with our 2 kids and dog, and they were very happy and accommodated. A must visit see for wine lovers!
